Simone Nieweg: Plants, Sheds, Arable Land. Working in Nature

Opening in Cologne: September 8, 2023 – January 21, 2024

We are very pleased to announce a comprehensive exhibition of over 60 color photographs by Simone Nieweg, taken between 1986 and 2022, opening at Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur in Cologne on September 8, 2023 and running through January 21, 2024

This survey exhibition highlights Simone’s career long engagement with the peripheral and industrial landscapes across the Rhineland regions of Germany and into France. Using a large-format camera, Simone reproduces what gives structure and continuity to the land: alternative allotments, future building land, patches of meadow, fields turning into wild growth, vegetable beds, plowed fields in winter, or blossoming fruit trees as harbingers of spring.

To accompany the exhibition an extensive catalog of the featured works is available including an engaging conversation between Simone Nieweg and Gabriele Conrath-Scholl has been published. Copies of the exhibition catalog will be available through the gallery this Fall.
